Firstly, wash your hands (never touch your fresh tattoo with dirty hands).
Take off the plastic wrap.
Wash the tattoo with warm water and anti-bacterial soap.
Pat dry with a kitchen towel (do not use a hand towel or toilet tissue).
Apply aftercare cream of your choice (your artist can recommend some for you).
Allow the tattoo to air for 5/10 minutes and re-wrap with fresh plastic wrap.
Repeat this for 3 days, 4 to 5 times a day.
After the first 3 days continue to clean your tattoo and apply the cream, but don’t use the plastic wrap.
Never pick or scratch your new tattoo.
Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds until your tattoo is healed.
To ensure your tattoo always looks its best, you should use suncream when your healed tattoo is in direct sunlight.
Avoid swimming pools, saunas, baths, jacuzzis, etc until your tattoo is healed.
Avoid fake tan and make-up until your tattoo is healed.
